11 Is My Lucky Number.

So 11 right. You may be asking yourselves. Why 11? Well your questions will soon be answered. 11 is the number of WMSO concerts I’ve been in so far! And they have all been great! I love playing in the WMSO. I think it’s a great experience to have at my age. I’m 16, i’m still in high school, and i’m in a symphony orchestra. I just think that’s awesome! Maybe you don’t find it quite as awesome as i do, but still.  🙂 Doesn’t matter.

I hate allergies. They are bugging me so bad right now that i want to go crazy! I just hate allergies, they flat out suck. But oh well, life will go on i am sure.

I am in the process of RE editing my book, and i’m almost done!!! 😉 Should be pretty cool when it’s finished!! 🙂

So yeah pretty much i love my life, and hate the wind.

Love music, and hate allergies.

Love writing, and hate editing.

Love school, and am annoyed with most of the people in it.

Love blogging, and hate how my views per day for the past week has dropped to zero!!

Lol.

So i better get back to editing my book. Like i said, i’m almost done. 😉

Thank you all for reading my blog.

and

Happy Mothers Day Mom!!!! 🙂

Eet.

So today’s been pretty good. I’ve had a good day. I’ve had actually a really good day.  So yeah this is my song for the day. I love Montgomery Gentry. And i love this song. Montgomery Gentry is awesome. I saw them in concert and yeah they’re just amazing! Their music actually means stuff. So yeah while you’re reading this listen to my song of the day.

So today we all found out the results of the student coucil election. And guess what? Well i’m the representative for the junior class of 2012 next year! It’s so exciting and so scary at the same time. It’ll be good for me though, i know it will be. It will actually make me talk. So yeah i’m excited!! That’s only one of the many reasons that today has been great.

The next reason is that it’s amazingly nice outside right now. Like oh my great good goshness nice outside. The sky is an amazing blue and it just makes my day even better! Oh how i really really like the sky! So yeah that makes me happy.

Also we’re starting our final projects in my history class and i’m excited about that and can’t wait to start my project (i’ll probly do that in a few minuets).

And i’m applying for a job at Subway.

Don’t know if i really want a job right now but oh well you have to start somewhere.

So yeah. That’s about all that has happened today.

Oh yeah and i played Boston in orchestra! Which is an amazing song, that reminds me that i need to look up the lyrics for tomorrow. It’s such a fun piano piece.

So yeah that’s all i have to say.

You all are awesome!!! 🙂

Laters.

It’s You And Me.

Yeah i know i haven’t written a good post lately. So i apologize. I’ve just been busy i guess. I’ve been having a good time though. Spending time with my friends at school, having fun in acadec. Loving life and music.

I sat first chair in symphony rehearsal last night and it was terrifying. I knew my music it’s just the fact that i got lost so missed my solo (which i also knew very well) and it made me sound like i hadn’t practiced my music ever. So yeah. But oh well. I still enjoy practice. I’ll just try even harder next week.  And be sure and practice a ton between now and then.

It is so freezing outside. I can’t see the beautiful blue sky. But it’ll all be okay. Today at school was really good. Like really really good. I gave my student council election speech ( i really hope i win ) and talked to some people that i really enjoy being around, and had fun in acadec. And finished the Grapes of Wrath (which is a very good book in my opinion, there is a lot of hidden symbolism, it’s intriguing. ) I’m just patiently waiting for them to post the outlines for the acadec curriculum next year so i know what songs they picked. I have a general idea which ones they’ll pick but i want to know for sure. So i’m waiting for that, like i said patiently.

I lost my iPod cord and it’s rather frustrating. I  need that cord, but oh well i guess i’ll find it in time.

I have my iPod on shuffle and am listening to every song on it gradually. Right now it’s on You And Me by Lifehouse. And before that it was on I Have Been Blessed by Martina McBride. Both amazing songs by amazing artists.

So yeah. I don’t have much more to say except that school is really going great and i’m really finding myself not being nearly as shy as i used to be, so that is just awesome! I don’t wan’t the school year to end. I don’t want to have to miss everyone that i go to school with every day! But oh well. It’s what, two or three months and then schools back in or something. Idk. I’ll live. Lol.

So yeah. I love my life.

I hope you love yours. 😉

Have a good night everyone.

So What, I’ve Got A Smile On.

So today has been a really calm day for me. And with John Mayor on my iPod i’m pressing play. I just love being so relaxed. And sir John Mayor and Michael Buble sure do help with that 😉

Sooooooo school tomorrow. That should be interesting.  I’m actually looking forward to it. I don’t really have anything to worry about so why not look forward to it. And so what if i’ve got a smile on this happy face. Oh how i’m ready for it to get warmer outside.

Look at the stars, look how they shine for you. And all the things you do.

🙂 Have a good night everyone.

(Oops forgot about my nightly thing to provoke your thoughts)

Do you believe everything happens for a reason?

If so ask yourself why.

And if not, ask yourself why.

Because, everything is connected, and everything happens for a reason.

Trust me.

🙂 Goodnight all.

A Cirlce’s Round, But Mine Has An End.

Today has been good i guess. I was with family all day, which always feels good. You don’t realized how much you miss someone until you see them again. And you really don’t really realize how much you miss someone until they’re gone. Yes i have had better days, then today has been for me. But today will do. I re-discovered a part of me that i forgot was there. And i’m hoping to keep the mentality that i have had all day. I need to; it’ll help a lot.

On other topics.

So recently (last night)  i lost the guy that i thought was my best friend. I told him everything at one point. But then our friendship went bad.  He isn’t the same person i once knew and cared about.  So i told him that i wasn’t going to talk to him anymore, and once i told him how i felt, i said bye, never to turn around again. I deleted him. Sure friends can be added again, but he will never obtain that same place in my heart that he once had. You can’t treat me like that and expect to get that place back. He used to value OUR friendship, but he’s changed. And he’s not the boy i once knew.  So goodbye truly is the best solution. As of right now, i don’t even miss him. Not after the way he treated me last night. Goodbye to him. Let him take his anger out on someone else. Maybe he’ll figure out that you can’t stay mad at the world  forever, and that when you mistreat friends, they leave you standing there in the shadows.

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.

Well i just got back from a WMSO concert and it went amazing. I just absolutely can’t wait for the Music Is… concert on Thursday. It’s going to be amazing. I just love playing for all of the little kids, AND i get to sit first chair!!!! I guess i can mark that off my bucket list 😉 I’m so excited. I just love playing, and Maestro Bailey just makes it all worth it. When you’re done playing a song and you look at her and she’s smiling, you know that you did well. And that is a feeling that i just can’t seem to describe. It’s a feeling of accomplishment and something that is not replicated by anything else. I love symphony, and i love feeling like i’m involved in something bigger than myself.  There are so many people in symphony, and they are all my family, my musical family.  We all work together every Thursday night and every concert. We all work together as a whole, to create music. Something that is universal. And something that is amazing. Without music i don’t know what my life would be. I just wish that there were two of me so that i could be playing my viola and watching the performance at the same time. That would be amazing.

Music is a part of me.

I swear music notes run through my blood.

When i’m playing everything just seems to fit together. Especially when i’m playing surrounded by friends and other people who love music, and performing. When i’m surrounded by such talent, that it makes me want to play music for the rest of my life. And i am going to. Nothing will stop me from playing my music, EVER! I’m going to make it my life, and no one will ever change my mind about that. Music make my life make sense. When i was younger i could only imagine playing in the White Mountain Symphony Orchestra. And now i’m a vital member. It’s just amazing. And when i graduate high school i will hate to leave it. I’m just glad that, that won’t be soon. I still have all of this year and the next two years. And that’s good, because i’m not ready to leave.

I really love music.

It is the most amazing thing in the whole wide world.

It connects all of us.

I’ll never forget the memories i’ve made in the WMSO.

So wish me luck.

‘Cause i’ll be doing this for the rest of my life 🙂

Goodnight everybody! ! !

Cavities and Wisdom Teeth

Well first of all i went to the dentist earlier today and the news wasn’t all good. First off all, I’m going to have to get two of my wisdom teeth removed somewhere around my 18th birthday (how fun!!!) and second, I have four cavities. One of them has to be in my top left canine. How that happened i have no idea. But i have an appointment in a month to get them fixed. Yay cavities and wisdom teeth!!! (Cough cough, SARCASM).

So more on what i said last night.

I think that humans like music so much because it makes things make sense. Some songs have lyrics that may describe a situation that we as people are going through, and that in general, may just make our situations make sense!! Say you recently went through a big heartbreak, a breakup, something along the lines of that. And then you go and turn on your trust radio, only to hear a love song (or a non love song sometimes), and at first you’re like, “Oh a love song, that’s just what i need right now.” But then you start listening, listening to the lyrics, and you realize, “OH!!! That makes sense, that’s what i’m feeling.” Or sometimes even “That’s what i need to do!!!!”.

Music just makes things make sense!!!! If you disagree i’m sorry but i know that that’s the way it is in my personal case.

I’ve also noticed that my personal taste in music changes with my mood.

If i’m in a pensive mood i’ll listen to more, easier listening songs, with good sensible lyrics. While when i’m happy, i’m totally into the techno and alternative pop that is just up beat and fun. Then there’s times when i’m sad. During those times, i tend to listen to classical music or music that just in general has no words to it. When i’m sad i listen to a lot of Mozart and Jim Brickman. But then. When i am mad, it’s rock, and hard rock, and metal all the way (not really heavy metal but metal).

Music, helps us understand things!! That is something that i’m not going to back down on. I know personally that, without music, i would live a confused and stressed out life. Music is may way of expressing myself. That’s why i play so many different instruments.

Now for your daily thing to think about.

Have you ever made a total fool of yourself in front of someone you cared about?

Did they totally never forget it and never let you down?
Or where they now ashamed to be friends with you?

If they were ashamed, then they really weren’t your friend. True friends wouldn’t care how much you looked like a fool.

A wise person once said and was completely correct:

“When friendships are real, they are not glass threads or frost work, but the solidest things we can know.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
